Irma
Irma, 54, is an enterprising woman who is cheerful and very friendly. She lives with Manuel, and together they have 2 children. They currently live in their own home with their daughter, Farol, who is 22 years old. She struggles each day to give her family the best.

Irma has a business selling food, an activity that she carries out every weekend. She works in a small space that she set up on the sidewalk in front of her house, where she offers regional dishes such as "juanes" (a dish made from chicken and rice), fried chicken, grilled meat and other specialties. She provides friendly service to her honored customers.

Irma starts this work very early in the morning when she goes to buy the ingredients that she will use to prepare the dishes. She has had this business now for over 16 years, and her daughter helps her tend to the public. She considers this work to be quite profitable, because of the regular customers that she has maintained thanks to the good taste of her cooking. She enjoys her business, as it has brought her both personal and financial satisfaction. She says that this is an activity that doesn't require an excessive amount of physical exertion, and this allows her to continue forward with it. She wants her business to remain stable so that she can keep on working.

This is Irma's 4th loan with MFP, and she is very grateful for the loan opportunity that they are providing her, giving her the financial support that she needs to continue forward. Irma promises to make her monthly payments on time, and to continue to work responsibly with the other members of her communal bank. With the sum of 1,500 Peruvian soles that she requests, she will buy groceries and ingredients to prepare a larger variety of dishes. She will also buy soft drinks.
